9780061688294: The Forty Years War: The Rise and Fall of the Neocons, from Nixon to Obama

In The Forty Years War, authors Len Colodny, author of the New York Times bestseller Silent Coup, and Tom Schactman, offer an eye-opening exposé of the history of the neoconservative movement—from its little-known role in Richard Nixon’s downfall through its ultimate expression in the preemptive war in Iraq. Groundbreaking and provocative, The Forty Years War documents the neocons’ undermining of the Nixon White House, their success at halting détente during the Ford and Carter years, their uneasy alliance with Ronald Reagan, and their determination to eventually take the U.S. all the way to Baghdad.

From the Back Cover:

Both a work of courageous journalistic investigation and a revisionist history of U.S. foreign policy, The Forty Years War details the rise of an insurgent movement, inside and outside the White House, that contributed to Richard Nixon’s resignation —including an eye-opening account of Bob Woodward’s direct ties to the military and to high-levelWhite House insiders who actively worked to force Nixon out. The result is a must-read for anyone interested in America’s standing inthe world—yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
